More construction at Sentosa expected until next year. Works include building the massive 620-m boardwalk which will have five pairs of covered travellators "to make the journey a breeze" and be "lined with retail and food and beverage outlets".
Work on this $70-million structure is expected to be completed in Nov 10.
Meanwhile, more construction is taking place on the shore near the Integrated Resort that we visited just last week. It has seagrass meadows, sea stars and other interesting marine life.
